June movies

The highlight of June was watching Jaws in an old theatre I love in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was a film print, the house was nearly packed and people were laughing, cheering and screaming. It doesn't get any better than that. The masses can flock to horrible junk like Transformers 2--I'll stick with something as timeless as Jaws for my summer thrills. Plus, Michael Bay is the devil if you didn't already know that. Also, The Hangover is really, really funny.

I so need to go to the movies soon. I haven't been this year (yikes). Just lots of rentals when I find the time. Work and travel keep interfering. Not to mention that pesky "reading" habit. I'll have to take your list and check out a few. Thanks.
